9/15/15 = 8 years with the Porkchop today (click here for pics and info)

Ladies and sperm cells (and Texas pals who still remember me),

Today is a special day. 8 years ago I drove off with a very special car. It was not love at first sight. It was tragedy marked by a silver (cyclone grey) lining when Porkchop came into my life. He grew on me like a tumor over the next year.

This is the car that allowed me to realize a 15 year dream I had since I was a teen, to own a brutal N/A monster I could build and repair myself...one which could turn, stop, and surprise the hell out of haters and Corvette owners.

This is the car that helped end THREE bad relationships with women who were terrible for me (2007-2013). And this is the car that came back to life with the love and support of some close friends. It has been polarizing and life changing, and I am a better man for it.

There is no triumph or victory in life with some tragedy and sacrifice along the way. Thank you to everyone who encouraged me and cheered me on as I shouldered through the struggles of failed clutches, hydraulic parts, rear ends, suspension bits, and three motor builds to be where I am today. You all know who you are. :-)

Many thanks to Julie Browder, for being the first woman to actively encourage my car hobby, instead of castigating me for it.

And for anyone curious about why this car is such a big deal, read about the 8-year legacy here (pics included for the illiterate/ADD folk):


The thread above has a two page post with honorable mentions for all the folks who helped me get here. Most of them I met on this very board.

So while FPFQ has been an economic pain, and more ignorant idiots are obtaining these great cars, I am still thankful for the friends and resources the GTO community has given me in my earliest days....often for diagnosing the strange issues these cars have.

Thank you moderators, members, and most importantly, my Texans! :thumbs:

Did I mention...All-Motor?

Too many reasons to be unhappy in life:

Car will almost always outlive a gf! Ha!
"You'll eventually send me your diff, send it the first time, not the second or third time! This will prevent thousands of dollars going to waste." STANDARD LIMITED LIFETIME GUARANTEE IS STANDARD ON ALL BUILDS.

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end"
